Homework week ending 12.10.2018

 

Reading

It was lovely to hear the poems chosen by the children. They read with confidence and expression, and the rest of the class really enjoyed listening to the poems. There is still the opportunity for children to complete this activity if they haven’t already done so.

This week, please encourage your child to do some research about children in Victorian times. We have just started to make notes in school, so if your child would like to make a few notes about what they have found out that would be great. However, the main emphasis is reading and understanding the text, and learning new information. We will be doing plenty of writing about our topic in school when the children have enough information to write about.

In ICT the children have learned about key words to use when searching for information. If they add KS2 to their search, they should find age appropriate texts to read.

Maths

Your child has been given a booklet with activities which support and revise some of the learning they have been doing in class.

Spelling

The results from the spelling test last week was the best we have had so far. 10 children scored 10/10 on the test. This week we have been learning spellings from lists 5 and 6. Please encourage your child to learn these words at home for a spelling test next Tuesday.

Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet

Congratulations to the Year 3 children who had a successful day learning about life in Victorian times at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet. The photograph shows the children before we set off. Note how they are posing as they would have done in Victorian times with their most serious facial expressions. The children learned about Victorian toys, they did the washing for Mrs Tyzac, and they learned about the jobs that Victorian people did there.

We are the first school to visit who had a child able to say what d stands for with old money. Well done to Magnus who knew that it was ‘denarius’ a Roman coin. Humphrey knew so much information already about the site that he was invited by our guide to explain the how the furnaces worked. I think Year 3 will have given a very good impression to the staff of Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet.

Homework week ending 5.10.2018

 

Reading

October 4th was National Poetry Day. In school, Mrs Garnett and I shared poems that we enjoy reading with the children. For reading homework this week, please encourage your child to read poems with you to develop reading pace and intonation. It would be lovely if your child could bring a copy of a poem they particularly reading enjoy to share with the rest of the class.

Maths

The learning focus for this week has been on place value and adding or subtracting 10 and 100 from 3 digit numbers. We have also been rounding numbers to the nearest 10. Your child has been given a booklet with activities which support some of the learning they have been doing in class.

Spelling

This week we have been learning spellings from lists 3 and 4. Please encourage your child to learn these words at home for a spelling test next Tuesday.

Have a good weekend,

Mrs Furniss and Mrs Garnett

Our Recipe for a Happy Home

       

We have almost finished our RE topic about Homes, and today the children created their own recipes for a happy home. I have taken sentences from the recipes of different children to share some of their lovely ideas. Enjoy…

 

 

Put some trust in with a dash of laughter

Next, mix the right choices and patience into the bowl

Shred some joy into the bowl

Remember to put some calmness into it

Take away the badness and add the friendship

Spread in some niceness just to make it perfect

Squeeze some good manners into the bowl

Pour in some caring and beat for ten minutes

Sprinkle some kind words on, and bake it in the oven.

Decorate with happiness

Cut it into pieces of love and share it with everyone

Enjoy the good times with your family.
